In Situ. Intimate threads linking Australia, Africa and Europe

January 14 @ 11:00 am - February 15 @ 4:00 pm

AN INSPIRING COMMUNITY ARTS EXPERIENCE WITH ARTIST/ART THERAPIST VIRGINIA RYAN

Five large artworks will be created over six weeks in January-February 2019, reflecting memories and meaning of the place in which we live. These five pieces are part of a larger international/intercultural project and will form its Australian content.

Chameleon Arts Balmoral invites you to participate in our project. You can participate in a several ways:

  • visiting the Balmoral Open Studios
  • take part at the free Workshops at Off the Rails Dunkeld
  • by sharing memorabilia

Sharing Memorabilia: we invite you to contribute small objects, memorabilia, threads and yarn, pieces of fabric, something from the farm, photographs (we can photocopy) ~ anything that reminds you of your place, your community or locality. These objects will become part of the artworks.

Chameleon Arts is now collecting objects & memorabilia at Balmoral Post Office. We look forward to your participation in this wonderful project and to receiving your special items.
